Your CSR goals = Our certification Standards

Our aim is not to "promise you the Earth" - but to give you a certified piece of mind!

We won't lecture you either, but we want you to be 100% sure that we deliver on the promises we do give.


For each project you confide in us, we will look into all the goals you can hit. And we will make sure to give you all the possible CSR marketing elements you can use corporately or in your marketing campaigns:

  • Which goals you are hitting.

  • Which standards are delivered.

  • Recommended communication & marketing angles that can be used with this project.


When you choose Merch&Co - we want you to be sure we are doing the right thing, even when you are not watching us!

What we look for when choosing factories:

GOTS

 

100% organic cotton by GOTS Sustainable Textile methods certified and inspected by Control Union. The aim of the standard is to ensure the textiles are made using raw organic materials and environmentally and socially responsible methods. License no. CU810963.

SA8000

 

SA8000 is based on the principles of international human rights norms. It measures the performance of companies in eight key areas: child labour, forced labour, health and safety, free association and collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours and compensation.

FAIRTRADE

 

The Fairtrade Certification Mark is your independent guarantee that the cotton in this product has been certified in accordance with international Fairtrade Standards. License no. 19007.

NEUTRAL® RESPONSIBILITY

 

Renewable energy powers the Neutral® production. That way, making Neutral® clothing contributes to cleaner environments and fights climate change. In times of surplus, energy not needed for production is directed to local networks.

Textile certification:

EU ECOLABEL

 

The official EU label for Greener Products. Ecolabelled products have a comparatively modest impact on air, water, soil, quality, natural resource consumption, global warming and biodiversity. Products must pass rigorous tests with results verified by an independent body. The label adorns top performing products only. License no. DK/016/049.

OEKO-TEX

 

The Oeko-Tex 100 Standard comprehensively addresses the human ecology component of textile products. It evaluates and screens for any harmful substances present within processed textiles, which are intended to come into contact with consumers. License no. ZHGO 034436.
